First Sunday of Eastertide

Touching the Resurrection

Rev. Benjamin Van Zetten Bruins will be preaching at Trinity on April 24.
Touching the Resurrection
Christ is risen yet on Easter evening the disciples are still huddled in fear. They need to be touched by the resurrection in order to live with peace and hope amidst danger and death. 
Revelation 1:4-8 & John 20:19-31
